Kisenosato Crushes Goeido’s Dream

Ozeki Goeido’s dream of reaching the highest rank of yokozuna was dashed after he suffered his third defeat Monday at the Kyushu Grand Sumo Tournament. Goeido (6-3), saw his opportunity for yokozuna completely evaporate after falling to fellow ozeki Kisenosato (7-2).

Kakuryu improved his record to 9-0 at Fukuoka Kokusai Center.  All opponents are all still currently chasing Kakuryu. Harumafuji and Hakuho, as well as newcomer Ishiura all won to stay a win behind Kakuryu, while five wrestlers including ozeki Kisenosato and Terunofuji have 7-2 records.
